The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has surfaced in the rumor mill and it looks like a perfect competitor to the 7.9-inch iPad mini.
Only after two months of the launch of the iPad mini, Samsung has a 8-inch tablet of its own and the Galaxy Note 8.0 could get an official unveiling until the end of February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Here is what the expected Galaxy Note 8.0 is said to look like in terms of specifications:
Platform: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
Official name: GALAXY Note 8.0 (3G, Wi-Fi)
Product codes: GT-N5100, GT-N5110
Battery: 4,600 mAh
Dimensions: 211.3 × 136.3 × 7.95 mm , 330 grams
Display: 8.0-inch 1280×800 TFT (Super Clear LCD)
Processor: 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos 4412
Internal storage: 16/32GB (optional) + microSD (up to 32GB)
GSM networks: EDGE (850/900/1800/1900) HSPA+21.1Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps (850/900/1900/2100)
What’s most interesting, is that SamMobile points out that this should be a cheap alternative to the iPad mini, and if Samsung manages to price this low enough, we can see Apple having one more reason to be worried.
